INSIDE: Motat Cafe – Araroa Tearooms.
MOTAT, the Museum of Transport and Technology, is a full day out in Auckland with kids.
You’ll need to refuel at least once.
Visit the MOTAT Cafe to enjoy lunch or traditional kiwi fare in delightful heritage building surrounds.
MOTAT Cafe in Auckland
The Araroa Tearooms at MOTAT Auckland sells good coffee, including all the regulars, plus Hot Chocolate, English Breakfast Tea, Herbal teas, and Chai Lattes.
You can purchase snacks including cronuts, Kiwi lolly cake, cakes and pies from the counter. There’s not a huge selection and they go quick, so eat earlier in the day if you can.
MOTAT Cafe Menu
There’s also a full menu. Prices are moderate. No different to most New Zealand cafes in Auckland, but more expensive than home. We shared the loaded beer-battered fries with chicken pieces. Yum!
Nab a table inside the historic building to stay in the warm, or if it’s a sunny day, there’s an undercover patio section outside for bigger families and small groups, and also extra seating out front.
